Submarining

The term 'submarining' describes what could happen in a head-on collision when the lower part of the body is pushed deep into the seat cushion and slips beneath the lap belt. To prevent this, all our seats feature a steel-reinforced anti-submarining ramp which helps minimise the risk of injury in such accidents. Located in the seat base, it is inclined so the front edge points upwards.
